Mid-Week Poll: Selling Online

Selling Online

We have decided to start doing a mid-week poll on our blog! Yay! We are mostly doing this because on a daily basis I come up with things that I would like opinions on and with our blog making us tons and tons of new friends, I figured this would be the best way to do that! That being said – feel free to comment here on the blog with your answers or anywhere else that you see our polls such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Pinterest. We would love to hear what you guys have to say 🙂

This week’s poll is about selling homemade products online. We are asking this question because, of course, I have come up with another fabulous idea (I am thinking of new ones faster than I can write them down!) and though I am not yet ready to reveal what it is, I will hint that it is in the realm of planning, reading, notebooks, and stationery.

As many of you know, selling through third-party sites like Etsy, Amazon, and Ebay require you to pay extra fees. These fees are applicable even if you do not sell. However, I feel like they do deserve consideration because of their massive traffic capabilities and because they make your products easily searchable.

On the other hand, I like the idea of selling our products through our blog because it is more personal and we could avoid those extra fees. I also like the idea of selling our products online because it would be another way for us to connect with our readers and friends.

What do you think?!

If you are already selling online, we would love to hear how you do it and how it is going for you.
